The best way to deal with a blown tire is to prevent it from happening in the first place. However, eventually, a flat tire is going to occur, and it’ll most likely be when you least need it. From Kevin's Auto Repair in Huntsville, AL, here’s what you need to do.

fleet of trucks

Your fleet or commercial vehicles most likely spend a lot of time idling. Whether it’s to keep warm or simply out of convenience, the stop and go lifespan of these vehicles mean idling is a part of their duties. But, is it bad for them? Kevin's Auto Repair in Huntsville, AL has the information you need.

If you spend much time on the road, you’ll eventually encounter a flat tire on your vehicle. At Kevin's Auto Repair in Huntsville, AL we want to prepare you for what you should do next.  First, get out of traffic immediately. It’s best if you can stop on solid, flat ground, out of the way of traffic where other drivers can see you. Don’t continue driving; your steering is compromised, and you risk damaging expensive components, including your rim. Next, decide whether you want to call a tow truck, or change the tire yourself.  If you have towing and assistance then you can call for help but it is always great to be able to handle the situation yourself if need be as there is not always cell phone service and you sometimes do not have the luxury of the added time it would take to wait for that assistance.

Customer Review
★★★★★
Kevin's Auto Repair was recommended to me by a tow truck driver and we decided to try them out. The first vehicle that needed work was my son-in-laws ford truck and he was pleased with the repair and the people. He said he would do return business with them. Not long after my daughters car needed some work and she had a very similar experience. It was a while before my Ford F150 needed attention and based on their experiences I took it to Kevin's for trouble analysis and 100K mile maintenance work I was extremely pleased with the work and advice I got and when I got my truck back it ran like it did when it was new. Be sure my family and I will continue to use Kevin's for our automotive repair needs!
